9/11 Hypocrisy from BlairSupporter and other American numbskulls

From a recent post by BlairSupporter (Uncle Jimmy):

Today President Obama laid a wreath at Ground Zero, four days after Osama bin Laden was killed. What took him so long? I don't mean 'so long' to kill bin Laden. What took him so long to lay a wreath or even TO VISIT Ground Zero!?

FIRST visit of President Barack Obama to Ground Zero. FIRST visit as President. I assume that he visited there prior to his inauguration almost two and a half years ago. Did he? In the eight years prior? Here he poses with officers of the First Precinct police station in lower Manhattan during a visit to the World Trade Center site in New York, May 5, 2011. (Picture from Voice of America)

How come the American President never managed to get around to visiting Ground Zero before today?

Well, let's take a look at President Obama's visits to 9/11 sites, and compare them with those of his predecessor.

But don't just take the word of a HuffPo blogger. Here are Barack Obama's visits to 9/11 sites:

2010 - Pentagon (as President)

2009 - Pentagon (as President)

2008 - WTC (during Presidential campaign)

The president, vice president, and former and current first ladies are all commemorating the anniversary at different locations.

Obama, Biden, Michelle Obama, and Laura Bush will appear at the three crash sites to commemorate the 10th anniversary. According to AFP:

US President Barack Obama will mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks at the Pentagon, and Vice President Joe Biden will be at the World Trade Center site in New York, the White House said Monday.

Officials had previously announced that First Lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush would on Saturday mark the attacks in Pennsylvania at the site where the hijacked plane that did not reach its target crashed.

So last year, on September 11th, the president visited a 9/11 site Jimmy conveniently forgets about, in Washington. But he didn't visit the New York site after becoming President. Oh dear. Maybe he had more important things to do than disaster tourism: you know, like his job.

Clearly like a good little American birther, Jimmy gets all his news from Fox.

Meanwhile, in other news, Tony Blair has NEVER visited the 7/7 memorial in Hyde Park (commemorating the only deaths from Islamic terrorism in Britain during his premiership). Gordon Brown did.

He NEVER visited Lockerbie (site of Britain's other Islamic terrorist attack) , despite being Prime Minister for eight years.

So Obama has shown more respect for the victims of terrorism (Islamic terrorism, even) than either G W Bush or Tony Blair.

I suspect Jimmy, who thinks his beloved President is a Kenyan Muslim, is just cross that while Blair and Bush only managed to kill Saddam who had no connection to 9/11 (and slaughtered thousands of their own soldiers and hundreds of thousands of civilians in the process) Obama's administration actually carried out what they had boasted they would do: kill OBL. That's why Jimmy is so busy trying to deny that OBL is dead at all.

Meanwhile, Jimmy's white supremacist pal, the faux-Jew of indeterminate gender who runs the Bare Naked Islam site, reprinted this cartoon (you'll see why I reprint it myself in a moment):

It's interesting that the cartoon lists 2,996 people as having been "murdered" on September 11th 2001, as that figure is the total dead including the hijackers. So who "murdered" them? BNI's own response to a commenter making a similar point was:

...idiot, that number doesn’t include the people killed on the planes and in Washington DC. The 19 hijackers aren’t in the county because weren’t people. And it doesn’t include all the troops who were killed fighting you Muslim pigs.

Which just goes to show that these people for whom "9/11 changed everything" can't even get the death count right.

Watch your mouth because I am Muslim, however that doesn't mean all Muslims are terrorists which is bias info you have in your head. Besides, you do not get to violate my first amendment which is the right to believe in any religion.
